Since she hasn’t been releasing a lot of music as of late, her bizarre and oftentimes offensive tweets have taken over as the characteristic people mostly identify her by. Well, Banks really wants to change this, which is why she’s leaving social media “for good.”
"I'm seriously tired of peoples feelings," she wrote in a Facebook status. "I'm tired of seeing their overly sensitive reactions and responses to everything. I'm tired of having everything I say or do be monitored and I'm tired of being told how I should be behaving." She then announced she was leaving Facebook, explaining that her legacy “can't live and die on the Internet.”
In May, Azealia Banks’s Twitter account was suspended after she posted racist and homophobic slurs aimed at former One Direction frontman Zayn Malik. She’s also made past controversial statements about skin bleaching, Beyoncé, President Obama, Erykah Badu and others.
